Promised a golden future as ruler of Scotland by three sinister witches, Macbeth murders the king to ensure his ambitions come true. But he soon learns the meaning of terror - killing once, he must kill again and again, and the dead return to haunt him. A story of war, witchcraft and bloodshed, "Macbeth" also depicts the relationship between husbands and wives, and the risks they are prepared to take to achieve their desires.
